Today marks the last day of the Play Nintendo celebration at the Irvine Spectrum Center in California, as it packs up to move to the Alameda County Fair in Pleasanton, California.
Here’s what we’ve learned so far:
In addition to plenty of photo ops in this pop-up Nintendo playground, there are several playable demos and a reward booths. In addition, those who pre-order or purchase select Nintendo games at participating GameStop locations near the 2017 Summer of Play tour stops will receive a Nintendo branded PopSocket mobile accessory device (while supplies last).
Upcoming Nintendo Switch titles: ARMS, Splatoon 2, and Pokkén Tournament DX will be available for the public to play, in addition to their latest releases from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, 1-2-Switch, Snipperclips – Cut it out, together!, Super Bomberman R, Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers, and Minecraft: Nintendo Switch Edition.
Upcoming Nintendo handheld titles from Hey! PIKMIN and Miitopia will be available to play for the first time, as well as popular titles: Pokémon Sun and Moon, Super Mario Maker, and Super Smash Bros. The New 2DS XL will be available to try out.
Participants can pick up a Play Nintendo Passport where they would receive a stamp per game played. My Nintendo members can additionally check in and spin a prize wheel, with the highly sought-after prize being a red stainless steel water bottle.
